and traffic. kron four's jeff bush shows you what it was like today at union square. >> traffic has been crazy down here at union square but those who chose to drive had to be patient because it's been a slow roll all day long. the drive down oferrel street was a slow motion affair and it took several cycles of the traffic lights just to move a block. it was a convergence of pedestrians and other drivers and total gridlock was often the case at any given intersection within a mile of the square. ()horns honking)á. freyed nerves and impatience were affecting many drivers who were caught off guard by the overwhelming amount of drivers ()honking)á and pedestrians. thousands of people were out and about with their shopping bags in tow. when the lights turned, you can see that the intersections were filled with at least a hundred people every time the light turned green. but, eventually, as slow as it was, people got where they were going and joined in with the annual tradition of holiday shopping in the city. i'm jeff bush, live in union square, kron four news >> volunteers in san jose spent the
of interviews with retired senators roll on. my conversation with jeff binghamton about why he wants to change the senate's rules and his own changing views on issues like same-sex marriage. you just have to eat it as part of your heart healthy diet. step 1. eat the soup. all those veggies and beans, that's what may help lower your cholesterol and -- well that's easy [ male announcer ] progresso. you gotta taste this soup. that's what may help lower your cholesterol and -- well that's easy oh, let me guess --ou see this? more washington gridlock. no, it's worse -- look, our taxes are about to go up. not the taxes on our dividends though, right? that's a big part of our retirement. oh, no, it's dividends, too. the rate on our dividends would more than double. but we depend on our dividends to help pay our bills. we worked hard to save. well, the president and congress have got to work together to stop this dividend tax hike. before it's too late. >>> well, it's not just a fiscal cliff that looms at the end of the year. a number of washington veterans are packing up their offices and they're not
lined up in oakland to trade their guns for cash. kron4's jeff pierce has the details. >> one hundred and twenty one, one hundred and twenty two, one hundred and twenty three, one hundred and twenty four. >>reporter: olois simmons of youth uprising counted the cars waiting to turn in guns for cash saturday afternoon in oakland. nearly two hundred cars with guns in their trunks waited hours for the hundred dollars for each gun for as many as three guns. it was one of the most succesful gun by back programs ever held in the city. >> one gun off the street is good but the whole back side of a paddy wagon is even better. >>reporter: that success was credited to youth uprising's ability to organize and promote the event beyond what a police department is able to achieve. >> we had young people as the voice of it we did out reach hand to hand in communities with community members reaching out to each other, you get a drastically different outcome then when you have the police reaching out. >>reporter: the oakland police department was more than pleased to process and take possession of thos
controversial again. we are in a situation, jeff goldberg, where someone's name is put out there. it's floated, and surrounding opposition piles on. can the president -- can this president afford to bail on a second person the way some perceive he bailed on susan rice before the nomination is even made? >> i don't know what you call the endless float. these people are put out there. their names are floated, and then they're floated endlessly, and it gives time for all of this opposition to arise and formulate, but, no, i mean, the short answer is obviously he bailed on susan rice who was his close confidant and friend. he apparently wants chuck hagel in this job very much. it would look very weak to be put it bluntly -- it would look weak to bail on this because of some coalessing opposition. >> and one thing has been cleaned up in the last few minutes, in fact. there was also opposition developing from the lgbt community because susan, of what chuck hagel had said 14 years ago in opposition to the nomination of james hormel, openly gay, as an ambassador to luxembourg. it would have been the f
couples that brought this case ultimately, chris and sandy, and paul and jeff, simply wanted the right to be able to marry the person that they love, and for their families to have the same recognition as their neighbors, and that's why this case is so simple. i do believe it was the right time, and i am confident, i am optimistic that once the court hears this case and sees the evidence that was preblted at trial, that as they have so many times in our nation's past, will come down on the side of freedom and equality. >> it's clearly where the american people are in terms of all the polling. the country has moved on. it's accepted. gay marriage is -- >> no question. >> same-sex marriage is simply an accepted fact of life, and so many families across the country. yet, the risk is that this could become illegal. what happens to all of these couples? what happens to their rights? >> look. at the end of the day, again, i'm optimistic we'll win this case. as we did in the lower court and by a judge who was first appointed by ronald reagan and then later by george bush. and then won at the
and talk to cnn senior legal analyst, jeffrey toobin. jeff, what's your reaction to what mr. ferras says? >> first, it's important to put into political context what he's saying. hatred of the united nations is now a bedrock principle of the conservative movement in this country. so anything relating to the united states -- the united nations, even something as uncontroversial as this treaty, draws objections based on hypothetical and as far as i can tell, extremely far fetched ideas about what the treaty might do. >> he said there are many cases of u.n. treaty becoming u.s. law. u.n. treaty superseding u.s. law, becoming the law of the land. >> a, not true. as far as i am aware in any significant case. >> he cites a multitude of cases. >> i was familiar with one of the cases he cited, the bond case, which was not in the supreme court about the treaty obligation to the united states at all. >> the united nations? >> the united nations. no, no. the treaty obligations of the united states under the united nations at all. the other point is that the congress has said, john kerry, who is cha
in every new car. by september of 2014. jeff flock is in chicago with more. reporter: actually, we are rolling down the highway of chicago right now. looking for action as we take a live look outside the vehicles. this is an example of the obama administration on being able to get something passed through congress. they are going to spur congress and try to require the black boxes in every new vehicle. before you get set, there are multiple sides to the story. the insurance companies and the automakers -- the transportation department and the safety folks as well as law enforcement, they all like this idea. because believe it or not, when we get into auto crashes, we somehow misreport often what happened. we said we weren't going as fast as we were. we may say that we had her foot on the break when in fact we didn't. a lot of these groups think this is a good idea. of course, privacy advocates do not like it. they are concerned about what the government might do with the data, perhaps using it to track movement. that is not what these data recorders do right now. multiple sides to
note and atlantic magazine. steve is also a former policy adviser for new mexico senator jeff bingaman. thank you for being here. >> great to be with you rachel. >> am i being naive to think this was going to pass? >> a lot of people thought it was going to pass. of all the treaties, this would be the easiest to pass. there were other treaties pending. this is about people in need and it didn't. this is a branch of the gop that did you want represent all republicans, but it's the obnoxious nationalist wing that really resents any international deal making. there's a lot of worry not just about people with disabilities, but all the other treaties that position the united states and show that it can be the primary sculptor of global affairs, and we're defecting from that as of today's vote. >> so 126 countries ratifying this, but us, not ratifying it. particularly when it's modeled on our law. that takes us out of a global leadership role? >> it leaves a void that the united states is walking away from the responsibility of primary leadership in the world of sculpting global affairs in t
